A&M fire pit

Postby strength_and_pow » Sat Dec 12, 2020 8:02 pm

Usually I’m a last minute Christmas shopper. I did better this year. A welding friend drew this up in Solidworks and sent me the DXF files. I traded my labor with another friend for some time on his plasma table and some 1/4” steel. Changed up the design a tiny bit and added the A&M logo. Welded it up after work over a few nights. Used some perforated sheet behind the logo to keep ashes inside and fire screen in the top to hopefully stop any stray sparks from burning the house down. Added lockable casters, built a small log grate and hit it with some high temp flat black. I won’t be wrapping this bad boy but it will get a bow. Fun project for sure. I’m thinking Santa Maria grill for my next project.

Well thought out, quality work. Very nice.

When I saw the title I was half expecting a joke.

No joke on this one. You did really good

Not being a Texas native and not giving two sh!ts about college rivalries I can only assume you were making a friendly insult. Whatever floats your boat.

No insult at all; we do Aggie Jokes in Texas but it’s all in fun
